Influenster MKGlam VoxBox

Before I begin my post today, I wanted to say Happy Mother's Day to all the mom's out there!!! I hope everyone is enjoying today! =)

I'm super excited for this post today since I get to share with you guys a voxbox that I recently received from Influenster! I've gotten 3 other voxboxes in the past, which you can see reviews for here, here, and here, but I have to say that this voxbox has the highest value/products in it!
I got an email while I was on my spring break/vacation stating that I qualified for this voxbox and a link to take a survey. There was a deadline for the survey which I had unfortunately missed by ~45 minutes, so I was pretty sure I wouldn't get the box. I still took the survey nevertheless and a few days later, I got another email stating that I was in!!!! I was shocked when I read this since I was sure I wouldn't get it, but in two days (talk about fast shipping), the box got to my house! 

Influenster Mary Kay Voxbox
Cat sticker placed by me =)!
First off, I have to say that this has to be one of the prettiest boxes I've received so far! I love the packaging of the outside. It's so chic and sophisticated looking! As I opened the box, I began to fall even more in love! The inside of the box was a beautiful light pink color (did I mention that pink is my favorite color?) and the words "Hello Gorgeous!"
 I noticed that this particular box seemed to be packaged very delicately. There was a light pink tissue paper that wrapped everything together. The box itself felt very light, so I was not sure what to expect on the inside..

Influenster Mary Kay Voxbox

As I unwrapped the tissue paper, I noticed a few things op top. The first thing I saw was a look book from Mary Kay which I took a quick glimpse at. I really wish I could make my makeup look like the model's makeup!! haha. I also received a card from Mary Kay and one from influenster listing all the items that were in the box. I couldn't help but notice how much products were on the list and I wondered if they were actually all in my box.. well... 

MK Glam Influenster

They all were in my box!! What was even more impressive to me was the fact that all these products were full sized!! I could not believe it.. 7 full sized makeup products and 3 brushes all in one box!! I was speechless when I saw everything inside.. It was literally product after product!

Mary Kay Translucent Loose Powder

The first item that caught my eye in the box was the Mary Kay Translucent Loose Powder ($16.00). This powder is advertise as to be able to control shine all day. I have yet to use it, but I know that in the summer, my face tends to go from being normal to oily. I tested some of it on my hand and it seems to go on smoothly and from what I can see, it doesn't leave a white layer in my skin. One thing that I do love about this powder is the packaging. This powder has a piece under the lid that allows you to twist to close. That way, the powder will have no chance of spilling out. 

Mary Kay Bronzing Powder and Mineral Cheek Color

The next two products that caught my eye in the box was the Mary Kay Bronzing Powder ($18.00) and the Mary Kay Mineral Cheek Color in shy blush. ($12.00) 

I personally have fair skin seeing how it has just been winter so finding a bronzer that doesn't look odd on me. This color is surprisingly very nice for me. There is a tiny bit of gold shimmer in it, but it's really subtle. I wouldn't say that this bronzer is one you should contour with, but it really does create a beautiful and natural finish on your skin. I would say that this bronzer is perfect for the summer!

The mineral cheek color is extremely smooth and lightweight. It's not heavily pigmented, but does give a fresh flushed look which is what I love. Like the bronzer, there is a bit of shimmer in it that really doesn't show through once it's on your skin. In my opinion, this blush defines your cheekbones and really compliments the bronzer well! 

Mary Kay Lash Love Mascara

The next item in the box was the Mary Kay Lash Love Mascara ($15.00). So as you may know, I personally have short, stick, straight lashes and it's always a struggle to find a suitable mascara. The first thing that I noticed about this mascara when I opened it was that it was very wet. I did like the brush a lot though since it had some serious lengthening power. This mascara has amazing lengthening power and gave decent volume. Overall it made my lashes look nice and clump free, but I don't think it's anything special.

Mary Kay Gel Eyeliner with Expandable Brush Applicator in Jet Black

This product is exactly something I have been looking for! It's the Mary Kay Gel Eyeliner with expandable applicator in Jet Back. ($18.00) What's even better with this gel liner is that it comes with a mini brush as well! I'm not the best with gel eyeliner, so I need to practice first, but this liner is very pigmented!! The liner goes on very smoothly and is quite creamy. It doesn't smudge at all and has great lasting power (even through my workouts!) ! In fact, the lasting power is so strong that it's hard to remove at night haha! (But that makes it perfect for me since I'm always very active and my liners tend to fade away.)

Mary Kay Cream Eye Color in Apricot Twist

This is another product that I was super excited to see in the box. It is the Mary Kay Cream Eye Color in Apricot Twist. ($14.00) This cream shadow is such a beautiful color and it works well on it's on. The shadow works well with oily eyelids and like the gel eyeliner, it doesn't budge at all throughout the day. The color is incrediully creamy and goes on very smoothly. Though the shadow initially looks like a deep gold in the pot, when it is applied, the color is rather light with a subtle gold shimmer to it.


Mary Kay Nourishine Plus Lip Gloss in Mango Tango

This next item in the box was the Mary Kay Nourishine Plus Lip Gloss in Mango Tango. ($14.00) This product I'm kinda have mixed feelings about. I originally liked this product a lot until I got a close look at the color. The color is a a bright and intense red/orange color which is beautiful, but not exactly for me. It's very pigmented so if you are looking for something like this, then this is perfect! The gloss itself went on smoothly, but rather sticky which is the reason why I don't like lip gloss!

Mary Kay® Cream Eye Color/Concealer Brush

Along with the applicator brush that came with the gel eyeliner, I also got the Mary Kay Cream Eye Color and Concealer Brush. ($10.00) I'm not in need of brushes at the moment, but I can definitely keep these for later! The bristles for these brushes are soft and packed tightly and I haven't noticed any shedding so far.

Influenster Mary Kay Voxbox

Overall I am very satisfied with this influenster voxbox!! This box is just stuffed with so many full sized makeup products that I want to test out! There was a great range of products in the box. I got everything from mascara, to lip gloss, to blush, and even brushes! I could do my whole face's makeup with everything in the box! The colors in the box are perfect for spring and summer. A few colors are a bit out of my comfort zones, but many were perfect for me!

    2. How To Stop A Divorce And Save Your Marriage?(Dr.Brave).

      Hello to every one out here, am here to share the unexpected miracle that happened to me three days ago, My name is Jeffrey Dowling,i live in TEXAS,USA.and I`m happily married to a lovely and caring wife,with two kids A very big problem occurred in my family seven months ago,between me and my wife so terrible that she took the case to court for a divorce she said that she never wanted to stay with me again,and that she did not love me anymore So she packed out of my house and made me and my children passed through severe pain. I tried all my possible means to get her back,after much begging,but all to no avail and she confirmed it that she has made her decision,and she never wanted to see me again. So on one evening,as i was coming back from work,i met an old friend of mine who asked of my wife So i explained every thing to her,so she told me that the only way i can get my wife back,is to visit a spell caster,because it has really worked for her too So i never believed in spell,but i had no other choice,than to follow her advice. Then she gave me the email address of the spell caster whom she visited.(bravespellcaster@gmail.com}, So the next morning,i sent a mail to the address she gave to me,and the spell caster assured me that i will get my wife back the next day what an amazing statement!! I never believed,so he spoke with me,and told me everything that i need to do. Then the next morning, So surprisingly, my wife who did not call me for the past seven {7}months,gave me a call to inform me that she was coming back So Amazing!! So that was how she came back that same day,with lots of love and joy,and she apologized for her mistake,and for the pain she caused me and my children. Then from that day,our relationship was now stronger than how it were before,by the help of a spell caster . So, i will advice you out there to kindly email this wonderful man {bravespellcaster@gmail.com},i f you are in any condition like this,or you have any problem related to "bringing your ex back. So thanks to Dr Brave for bringing back my wife,and brought great joy to my family once again.{bravespellcaster@gmail.com}, Thanks..

    Are you doing anything special for mother's day today? Nope. I'm not the mushy type so I'll never do something big.
    Have you tried any products from the Mary Kay line? Yes. A lot actually, but the one I frequently use is the foundation. LOL

  18. Very cute packaging!!!!

    I'm not really into make-up products XD. For me, as long as it would look good on me I'll buy it, so I don't really know what to say on each item. But... I have to say that I really like how the eyeliner works... i really need such kind of eyeliner that won't get ruined the whole day.

  28. I never believed in love spells or magic until I met this spell caster once when i went to see my friend in Indian this year on a business summit. I meant a man who's name is Dr ATILA he is really powerful and could help cast spells to bring back one's gone, lost, misbehaving lover and magic money spell or spell for a good job or luck spell .I'm now happy & a living testimony cos the man i had wanted to marry left me 5 weeks before our wedding and my life was upside down cos our relationship has been on for 3years. I really loved him, but his mother was against us and he had no good paying job. So when i met this spell caster, i told him what happened and explained the situation of things to him. At first i was undecided,skeptical and doubtful, but i just gave it a try. And in 7 days when i returned to Canada, my boyfriend (now husband) called me by himself and came to me apologizing that everything had been settled with his mom and family and he got a new job interview so we should get married. I didn't believe it cos the spell caster only asked for my name and my boyfriends name and all i wanted him to do. Well we are happily married now and we are expecting our little kid, and my husband also got the new job and our lives became much better. His email is atilahealinghome@yahoo.com
